Well, England win the match but hardly cover themselves with glory, while Bangladesh again underline that they are in the Super Eights on merit. That's it from me, Martin Williamson, and Jenny Thompson. Tomorrow's offering is New Zealand against Sri Lanka with the winners almost guaranteeing themselves a last-four berth. Join us at 9.00am (1300GMT) for all the action.

The English element in a disappointing crowd go wild, the neutrals reflect on what might have been, while the England dressing-room look relieved more than jubilant. That was a mighty close thing, and Bangladesh really ran them ragged for a time there.

Mashrafe Mortaza to Nixon, FOUR runs
banged in, Nixon onto it quickly and lofting the ball behind square on the leg side

England's NRR has not been helped here ...

44.4
Mashrafe Mortaza to Nixon, no run
met with a straight and quite lifeless bat

All the field in, understandably.

44.3
Mashrafe Mortaza to Nixon, no run
full and angled across Nixon, who punches it to mid-off
44.2
4b
Mashrafe Mortaza to Nixon, 4 byes
leg side, but the ball really spat as well, and it rocketed under Nixon's armpit and over the keeper's head
44.1
1
Mashrafe Mortaza to Collingwood, 1 run
saved by a thick inside edge - it was cleaning him up otherwise - and a run as the ball shoots into the point region
end of over 442 runs
ENG: 138/6CRR: 3.13 • RRR: 1.00 • Need 6 from 36b

43.6
Abdur Razzak to Nixon, no run
Nixon tries another reverse sweep, the ball bobbles into the off side and Collingwood, who had called for and come for the run, has to dive full length to regain his ground. A poor throw helped him out
43.5
1
Abdur Razzak to Collingwood, 1 run
driven to long-off ... it's carnage out there now, two in two balls
43.4
1
Abdur Razzak to Nixon, 1 run
runs to deep midwicket - at last, the first scoring shot for 23 balls, and some excuse for the sarcastic cheers
43.3
Abdur Razzak to Nixon, no run
again he looks to reverse sweep but it's too wide outside off and Nixon pulls out of the stroke
43.2
Abdur Razzak to Nixon, no run
an attempted reverse sweep, he misses and leg slip fields the ball as it bounces off the body
43.1
Abdur Razzak to Nixon, no run
outside off, Nixon sniffily leaves
end of over 43Maiden

Mashrafe Mortaza8-3-23-0
Abdur Razzak9-1-28-2

Three maidens on the trot.

42.6
Mashrafe Mortaza to Collingwood, no run
that one beats Collingwood, who had taken two steps to meet it, Mortaza appeals but it was too high going down the leg side
42.5
Mashrafe Mortaza to Collingwood, no run
same length, Collingwood back and dead bats the ball to Mortaza
42.4
Mashrafe Mortaza to Collingwood, no run
and again, Collingwood can do no more than push the ball to midwicket
42.3
Mashrafe Mortaza to Collingwood, no run
good line from Mortaza, tight and keeping Collingwood pinned down
42.2
Mashrafe Mortaza to Collingwood, no run
worked to midwicket
42.1
Mashrafe Mortaza to Collingwood, no run
short of a length, Collingwood goes back, into line and blocks
end of over 42Maiden

Abdur Razzak9-1-28-2
Mashrafe Mortaza7-2-23-0

Back-to-back maidens. But it's wickets, not maidens, that Bangladesh need now.

41.6
Abdur Razzak to Nixon, no run
Nixon again looks for a gap on the leg side and fails to find it
